Detour at Forrester Road and SR-86/4th Street
EL CENTRO, Calif. (KYMA, KECY) - According to California Department of Transportation (CalTrans), construction crews will close all lanes of Interstate 8 (I-8) between Forrester Road and State Route 86 (SR-86)/4th Street in El Centro Tuesday, June 1, from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. Closures include the on-ramps from Forrester Road to eastbound I-8, from SR-86/4th Street to westbound I-8 and from southbound Dogwood Road to westbound I-8.
Closing the roads is necessary to make adjustments on the bridge falsework which is used as a temporary support during ongoing construction of the I-8/Imperial Avenue Interchange Project. The bridge clearance has been reduced to 15 feet through September.
Signs will be posted directing westbound I-8 traffic to exit at SR-86/4th Street and travel north to Adams Avenue/Evan Hewes Highway, then west to Forrester Road and south to the I-8 connector.
Eastbound I-8 traffic will be detoured to exit at Forrester Road and travel north to Evan Hewes Highway, then east to SR-86/4th Street and south to the I-8 connector.
